Hmm no, sadly neither of your well-meant suggestions works.

I know very well about to-list, setting it is one of the first things I
do after subscribing to a mailing list.  But this is _not_ about mailing
lists.  These articles come from real Usenet newsgroups, with no mailman
or similar sitting between me and a NNTP server.  In most cases at
least, there is no mailing list that is cross linked with the group; in
fact I intentionally avoid groups like that because mailman still breaks
threading (and other gateways such us googlegroups do too).

It's just that I store them in an IMAP store.  I do that for two current
reasons and one potential one:

1. IMAP stores readedness and subscription state on the server, so it
can be shared between my client devices, without resorting to the horror
that is NFS.

2. They pass through whatever antispam measures are in effect for email.

3. (future/potential) Maybe I can hack Gnus to allow article editing in
nnimap.  Then I have editable news reading, a long time dream of mine.

About your 2nd suggestion: C-c C-p is unbound in both summary and group
buffers.  Perhaps the following is relevant?

gnus-version is a variable defined in `gnus.el'.
Its value is "Gnus v5.13"

What command does C-c C-p n invoke in your Gnus?
